>>> Voting: Oly Challenge 216, Daydreams <<<

On behalf of John, who mounted this wonderful challenge for everybody, many thanks to all who did or will take part, whether by entering, commenting, or just looking. Now comes the voting, a difficult and yet fun part of the process. And there remain two days to leave comments as well. With many fine entries to consider (29 in the Competition, 27 in the Exhibition), please put on your art-critiquing eyeglasses, keep the theme in mind (Daydreams), and select your favorites.

Ok, here is how this goes: In each gallery -- Exhibition and Competition -- you have 16 points (votes) to give out among your favorites (do not vote for your own entries). Please vote in both galleries. In each gallery, you must assign 4 points to one photo, and then you can share the remaining 12 points as you wish, but you cannot give 4 points to another image in the same gallery.

In addition to allocating 16 points per gallery, you can award Honorable Mentions; just click on the "H" instead of a point-number. There's no limit on the number of Hs you can give. The Hs have practical value as well as glory; they are used as tie-breakers when entries' point totals are equal.

In the voting page, if you use the same login name upon returning, you can make changes up until voting closes. Be sure to Save your completed vote, so it will be there if you want to come back later to review/change.

It's useful to view the entries full-size before voting, either stepping through them or in slide-show mode. Mere thumbnails simply don’t carry the impact of a larger image, and it honors the photographers to respect their work by seeing it in large-view.

If you are new to the voting, I think you will find it wonderfully easy, thanks to Warren's wonderful voting machine. Voting period is from now until 9 pm (GMT) on Wednesday August 28, 2013. Here is a handy time checker: http://wwp.greenwichmeantime.com/

The Results post will appear as soon as possible after tabulation. Our overall top pick in the Competition Gallery earns the photographer the honor of setting a theme for the next challenge, and moderating that challenge round.

As always, on behalf of all in the forum our grateful thanks and continuing appreciation for pBase's generosity in hosting our challenges. Also thanks to you for making this a good learning experience for all and fun at the same time.

Now, being good global citizens, let's VOTE!
